Santa Claims Kyrgyz Mountain

With 90% of mountainous terrain and peaks soaring up to 7000 meters, Kyrgyzstan is still remote and under-explored, and many of its peaks remain un-named. According to BBC News, a group of Kyrgyz mountaineers will climb the peak on Christmas Eve as part of the official ceremony of giving it the name Santa Claus Peak.
